Scenes when Blake reverts back to all nba form
[–]Clippers AngsMcgyvr 789 指標 11小時前*
I do not like those scenes..
[–]Wizards justthis1timeagain 22 指標 10小時前
But if they beat you guys at least you'll have some joy for Blake, right?
[–]Clippers Calm_and_Collected5 28 指標 7小時前
Absolutely; Blake made our franchise relevant and attractive enough for CP3 to consider coming here and re-signing.
Long time Clippers fans owe a lot to Blake
[–]San Diego Clippers floppelganger 33 指標 8小時前
It would be cool to see DJ and Blake finally win a ring after all the unlucky shit they had in LA. Seeing Dantoni get one as well would pretty wholesome as well
[–]Hornets dank-kush 34 指標 11小時前
I honestly would believe it. He’s out of a shitty situation, but he also threw away so much money that kinda makes me believe that he believes he can still play. Maybe not all nba form but good enough off the bench for all of the nba to say how the fuck did the nets get Blake griffin.
[–]Warriors ShitSide 234 指標 11小時前
Wouldn’t surprise me at all to find out he’s been sandbagging
[–]Pistons MattPatriciasFUPA 68 指標 11小時前
That sandbaggin son of a bitch!
[–]Grizzlies EatDeeply 143 指標 11小時前
What’s the difference between actively sandbagging and being disengaged because your team is a losing team?
[–]Suns HarukiMuracummy 253 指標 11小時前
He will play better for sure. Not all-nba, but nephews on her gonna be shocked when it turns out the chance to compete for a championship motivates players to do better.
[–]Westbalooox 76 指標 10小時前
Yeah pretty much. Same thing happened with Batum & this year he’s a serviceable starter… people said he should be out of the league last year.
Blake has had good games on & off this year. He’ll probably keep trying more.
[–]Nets aydee123 25 指標 11小時前
I guess it is weird that just 2 years ago at this time he was in the midst of an All-NBA season.
Then again with his injury history and at age 32 it's definitely possible that he's just had too much taken out of him.
[–]Grizzlies EatDeeply 26 指標 11小時前
I feel like I saw some box scores this year where he was like 6/8 from 3 or some shit like that
[–]Celtics masonistheshit 19 指標 11小時前
I mean he can shoot for sure but he’s shooting 31.5% on 4 attempts per game. The spacing on the Nets will get him more open looks, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s just not getting lift on his jump shots anymore.

Imagine telling someone in 2016 that Kyrie, Harden, KD, Griffin, and DJ were going to be on an nba team together.
[–][CHI] Zach LaVine Uncircled_swag2 1079 指標 10小時前
Funniest part about it would be telling them Steve Nash is the coach of that team

And that Mike D’Antoni would be his assistant

As someone who actually watched the Brooklyn nets in that time, this would actually be the most mind blowing.
[–]Rocinante5000 45 指標 11小時前
If he plays off the bench with Harden playmaking for him… could be scary
[–]76ersjustchill76 35 指標 11小時前
Really? I think given how well all the other guys are shooting…and how far below league average Blake shoots, that teams will just leave him open.
Like in terms of the nets offensive weapons, i'd take a blake shot 10 out of 10 times. 35% fg over the last 2 seasons is a mess.
[–]Rocinante5000 17 指標 11小時前
Yeah, but he was the guy on those teams. As a 6th man, or even further down when Dinwiddie returns, he offers solid playmaking at the position and he can shoot off the dribble surprisingly well. I'm not expecting much from him, but Harden is only second to Bron in my book in terms of getting the most out of over the hill players.
[–]Timberwolves zmajxd 25 指標 11小時前
I wouldn't put it past him.
[–]junkit33 75 指標 11小時前
I would. He looks dead out there. In fact he's looked awful since the All-Star break two seasons ago.
[–]Tampa Bay Raptors __MagneticAttitude__ 29 指標 11小時前
Its like Batum looking ass on the Hornets, and then being servicable on the Clippies.
[–]toclosetotheedge 23 指標 11小時前
Blakes had worse injuries than Batum tho
[–]Lakers HydroThermia 226 指標 11小時前
Me before the news: Blake can be a good pickup maybe he just didn’t try with the pistons because they’re bad!
Me after the news: Blake is trash lol he won’t do much for the nets
[–]Pelicans LuckyWarrior 34 指標 11小時前
I think he does try but his legs dont allow him to succeed
[–][BOS] Kevin Garnett celtics090 149 指標 12小時前
I get no one watches detroit, but Blake is full blown, unequivocally washed up. People in the comments section are acting like this is a huge add, when blake really shouldn't be anything more than an end of the bench guy.
[–]76ers forthestreamz 240 指標 12小時前
i will choose to believe this move will backfire on them and he'll be a net negative influence until proven otherwise
[–]Spurs YaBoiWhit 105 指標 12小時前
Its still Blake Griffin, everyone always looks better on a team like the Nets
Hes not going to be Blake of old but hes sure as hell going to be a good improvement to the Nets
[–]Cavalierskaprrisch 32 指標 12小時前
In terms of impact, I think it's gonna be similar to Deron Williams and Dwyane Wade on the Cavs.
[–][BRK] Kyrie Irving Sektsioon 56 指標 11小時前
Reckon he’ll be a decent lockerroom guy, but won’t add much on the floor. His efficiency SHOULD obviously go up with us and his playmaking can be useful at times, but I don’t expect him to play much once playoffs roll around, that is if our squad is healthy at that time. He’ll probably be like the 5th big in rotation behind KD, DAJ, Green and Claxton.
[–]NBA EarthWarping 21 指標 11小時前
Yeah, I'd be surprised if he's out there in the 4th quarter of playoff games.
Should be the type of guy you hope can give you 12 points in a pinch off the bench

How much help does Nic Claxton need smh
[–]Nets Ghoul-Sama 181 指標 11小時前
You don't even know how happy I am that the claxton is getting name recognition
[–]MagicGamesgtd 75 指標 11小時前
I don’t even know if he’s good or if he has the James Harden shine all pick and roll bigs have.
[–]New Jersey Nets BasedGodProdigy 28 指標 11小時前
Considering the best part of his game has been his defense, it's definitely him being pretty good lol
Offense is fair to chalk up to easy buckets from Harden/Kyrie tho DJ is getting blessed with the same looks and has an insane FG% because of it.
[–]Nets Ghoul-Sama 52 指標 11小時前
Few games he played last season as a rook, he showed ability to block shots and was always a decent pnr threat even with dinwiddie. The most impressive thing right now about claxton is his ability to legit switch onto guards and shut them down.
[–]Warriors VintageBaguette 15 指標 9小時前
He's receiving solid praise from the team for his energy and enthusiasm. He logged 4 stls and 2 blks his 2nd game in 15 mins of play. 3 blk game to follow that up.
I think his 71% from the stripe is encouraging as well. Small sample and he's yet to crack 20 mins but he seems he's fitting in nicely.
[–]Rockets Dazhar 13 指標 9小時前
I watched one game of Claxton playing and im convinced harden is going to turn him into the next Clint Capela
[–]New Jersey Nets tpc143 15 指標 8小時前
He’s much more skilled than Capella in my opinion. Better shooter and has some handles. Not as good as a rebounder and defender but has a lot of potential.
[–]NetsExpulsure 8 指標 12小時前
I will be so mad if Blake comes here and takes Claxtons minutes.
[–]Nets aydee123 15 指標 12小時前
If Claxton keeps playing the way he has been, then by the end of the regular season I could definitely see him being the main 5 getting 25 mpg or something.
And he is a guy who has actual potential, it's not as if he's some complete no-name scrub they found on the street. So I don't think his play since coming back from injury is a fluke really.

Yeah, we'll put him on whatever we put Jeff Green on.
[–]NBA Niceguydan8 28 指標 11小時前
Honestly Green might just be a better fit.
Maybe Blake could take some TLC or Shamet minutes, but I'd keep giving Green minutes. He's been pretty damn good, especially since Harden got there.
[–]Lakers 00DPark_ 165 指標 11小時前

For sure, but we are not going to give up assets for a Tucker that’s looking hella washed. Tucker’s making like 8m as well, we’d have to give up someone like Dinwiddie for him.
[–]Rockets LightSkinDarylMorey 45 指標 11小時前
He’s out for the season and is prolly not re-signing with the Nets.
Might as well trade him for PJ
[–]Nets bautistar1 67 指標 11小時前
tucker is 35 years old and is showing his decline. Dinwiddie is 10 weeks ahead of schedule and is "trying" to play this season. If we do trade dinwiddie, I hope its for a younger body than tucker.
